ASHA's Benefits of Membership
Your membership in the American Saddlebred Horse Association contributes significantly to safeguarding the integrity of the breed, promoting the use of Saddlebreds, and expanding the public’s knowledge of America’s original show and sport horse.
The monetary value of your membership contribution is returned many times over in benefits to the breed and to you as an Association member, as well as in services provided by the Association and the American Saddlebred Registry.
Beginning with the 2019 competition year - Owners, riders, drivers, handlers and trainers of American Saddlebred horses showing at USEF licensed competitions and open horse shows, who are not current ASHA competing members, will be required to become a competing member within 30 days after receiving a notice from ASHA. After 30 days, the show records (including points for KSF/WCHS Qualifying, CH, CH-EQ, National Pleasure, and ASHA High Point) of American Saddlebred horses whose owner, rider, driver, handler &/or trainer that have not joined ASHA, will be removed from ASHA records and the website.
